Mail order marijuana, also abbreviated as MOM or MOM's (in reference to the shops) is one of the most popular methods of ordering cannabis in Canada over the past years.
MOM's are considered a part of Canada's black market, and while some operate in varying shades of grey, most offer the ability to purchase products at prices much cheaper than available legally, on average.
Using long standing reputable vendors mitigates your risk in ordering from MOM's, as it has become not uncommon for fly by night operations to pop up and disappear before making more than a splash.
The service provided from MOM's is often far above and beyond what you can expect from the current recreational structure. MOM's more closely resemble the business models of mom and pop(pun intended) shops.
MOM's are best for cost conscious heavy consumers who are willing to do the research and due diligence before making a purchase with a new vendor. The variety offered even between a few MOM's trumps all of the current offerings on the legal market. That comes with a caveat. You usually have to wade through many more average, sub par or commercially produced products to find the ones that stand out. When ordering Canadian mail order marijuana, you should always do your due diligence with a company you are not familiar with.
Because of the abundance of MOM's and the level of competition in the black market, the amount of options far outweighs the products produced for the recreational markets, both in volume and variety. Popular black market brands are at the forefront of craft cannabis in Canada, and have helped drive the recreational market trends in both pricing and strains offered. Many of the strains available in the recreational market are legendary black market strains stabilized and adopted by the recreational legal market.
Cannabis communities exist worldwide, and Canada has a long standing history in the international cannabis community. Provinces like BC have helped revolutionize Cannabis trends globally, and enthusiasts, connoisseurs and casual smokers alike gather for events like April 20th all across cities in Canada.
The main community in Canada for MOM's is the CanadianMOMs subreddit. Over the past year it was geoblocked in Canada, so your best bet is to use https://old.reddit.com/r/CanadianMOMs+null/ or a VPN.
Services exist like https://momtrackr.com/home to search for specific strains within a list of vendors currently not blacklisted. You can find a list of MOMs and blacklisted MOMs on reddit. The hard work by the creators of momtrackr has helped increase the safety within the MOM community, they run it out of pocket for the community and if it helps you out consider donating!
